Overview of this book

Microsoft provides a solution to easily run small segment of code in the Cloud with Azure Functions. Azure Functions provides solutions for processing data, integrating systems, and building simple APIs and microservices. The book starts with intermediate-level recipes on serverless computing along with some use cases on benefits and key features of Azure Functions. Then, we’ll deep dive into the core aspects of Azure Functions such as the services it provides, how you can develop and write Azure functions, and how to monitor and troubleshoot them. Moving on, you’ll get practical recipes on integrating DevOps with Azure functions, and providing continuous integration and continous deployment with Visual Studio Team Services. It also provides hands-on steps and tutorials based on real-world serverless use cases, to guide you through configuring and setting up your serverless environments with ease. Finally, you’ll see how to manage Azure functions, providing enterprise-level security and compliance to your serverless code architecture. By the end of this book, you will have all the skills required to work with serverless code architecture, providing continuous delivery to your users.

Integrating Logic Apps with Azure Functions

In the previous recipe, you learned how to integrate different connectors using Logic Apps. In this recipe, we will implement the same solution that we implemented in the previous recipe by just moving the conditional logic that checks the follower count to Azure Functions.

Getting ready

Before moving further we will perform the following steps:

  1. Create a SendGrid account (if not created already), grab the SendGrid API key, and create a new key in the Application settings of the function app.
  2. Install Postman to test the GenericWebHook-C# trigger. You can download the tool from
